What a lovely surprise to be welcomed with fresh scones and homemade treats taken on the sunny patio overlooking the garden. The garden room was very comfortable with little luxuries in the form of special toiletries, shortbread with our tea and fresh flowers from their garden. Julie & Julian are the most accommodating hosts and every morning a fresh plate...

This fantastic B&B is well worth a visit. The welcome we received from Julie and Julian could not have been warmer. The fresh scones and home made jam we enjoyed on the patio on arrival really set the scene for a delightful three night stay. We stayed in the Garden Room which had a seating area looking out over the...

We have a lovely one night stop here in the wet Scottish summer! The welcome on arrival was superb and included tea, scones and homemade jam. The hosts set a very high standard here and have thought of everything. Cleanliness was impeccable!

Just occasionally you stay somewhere and feel that you need to be able to give it more than 5 stars and this is certainly the case with the fantastic B&B run by Julie and Julian. It would not be an exaggeration to say that I have never been looked after so well when staying away from home. I was greeted...

This was our second stay at the Old Smiddy, and we received the same warm welcome as last time. Julie and Julian are excellent hosts, and we had delicious breakfasts and a specially-prepared vegetarian dinner.

I don't often write reviews on anything and I'm kind of loathed to do this one as this is such a special place, you kind of want to keep it to yourself!!! But that's not fair really :) We only stayed for one night - THIS time - we will definitely be going back. Julie and Julian's welcome was superb...

After nearly a fortnight touring in the Western Isles our last night on our return to the mainland turned out to be the best. Unfortunately we only stayed 1 night but this was enough to convince us that Julie and Julian run an establishment of fine quality. We had the ground floor garden room which is more like a suite...

A lovely cream tea on arrival, a comfortable bed to sleep in and a beautiful breakfast made for a very pleasant stay. Our room was next to the road but the traffic did not disturb us. The views out the back are stunning.
